Chelsea will face United in the FA Cup semi-final clash at the Wembley Stadium on Sunday, and it will be better two managers who won the competition as players.

Meanwhile, former Manchester United striker Michael Owen has backed United to win this game 3-1.

Making his predictions for Bet Victor, Owen said: “Two teams battling out in the Premier Leaguefor a Champions League qualification spot go head-to-head.

“As players, these two managers have won this competition six times between them, Frank Lampard having won it four times and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer twice. Both managers know what it takes and how important this competition is.

“Manchester United have won all three meetings against Chelsea this season by an aggregate of eight goals to one and are going in to this match unbeaten in 19 games in all competitions.

“Chelsea narrowly beat Norwich in the Premier League last time out, but Frank Lampard will be hoping for more from his men on Sunday.

“United knocked Chelsea out of this competition in the fifth-round last season and I think they are going to do it all over again at the semi-final stage this time around.

“I am going for a 3-1 victory to Manchester United, thereby setting up a mouth-watering showdown between the two Manchester clubs in the FA Cup final.”
